Baby boomers want to enjoy life, look good and feel good, even as they enter their senior years. With advances in dental technology and improvements in dental care, many folks are keeping their teeth. And for those who have lost them, there are viable options for regaining dental health.
Your dentures support your facial and throat muscles. If the muscles in the back of the mouth and throat relax, they can cause an obstruction. Throat muscles act as a flap over the trachea. This leads to episodes of obstructive sleep apnea, which prevents air from entering the lungs.
Sleep apnea can cause a host of problems, which I’ve detailed in past columns and will, no doubt, visit again. Suffice to say it can be a dangerous disorder. [Read in Complete … ]
Sleep apnea, a serious and potentially life-threatening disorder if left untreated, affects approximately 18 million Americans. During sleep apnea episodes, a person stops breathing for at least 10 seconds. Depending on the severity of the disorder, a person can have between 10 and 60 episodes a night. Sleep apnea treatment often involves a team of healthcare providers, including dentists, general physicians, surgeons and sleep specialists.
If you think you suffer from sleep apnea, the Pennsylvania Dental Association (PDA) recommends consulting with your dentist. Early detection is key because sleep apnea has been linked with irregular heartbeat, high blood pressure, heart attacks and strokes.

Snoring not only robs sufferers of a restful nights sleep, but it can also lead to a variety of other health problems. Recent studies have linked snoring to health problems from sleep apnea to ADD, heart problems, weight issues and more. It also reduces the quality of sleep that is so important for good health.
If snoring has become a problem in your life there is some good news. You don’t have to struggle with snoring any longer. The use of a simple device known as a snoring chin strap has helped thousands achieve a healthy night’s sleep and it can do the same for you.
How does the snoring chin strap stop snoring? One of the primary causes of snoring is sleeping with an open mouth. This puts extra pressure on the throat, causing vibrations that result in snoring. The snoring chin strap solves this problem by keeping the jaw closed while you sleep. This greatly reduces and can even completely eliminate snoring.
